Stacey Abrams Says She Could Help Biden By Turning Out More Black Voters

Stacey Abrams, who previously served as the minority leader in the Georgia state House of Representatives, has repeatedly voiced her interest in running as the Democratic Party's vice-presidential candidate. The politician from Georgia reasserted that desire and explained why she'd make a good partner for Biden during an interview with CNN's David Axelrod on the Thursday episode of his podcast The Axe Files.

"I have the deepest respect for every woman who is being talked about and who should be considered for this post," Abrams told Axelrod. "But I know that for communities of color, particularly for the black community, there has got to be a recognition that their needs are met. And we have to have candidates who are able to not only speak to them, but turn them out."

"There has to be an intentionality to turning them out. A lot of folks can do that. I'm one of those people," she said. "And I have proven it by turning out more people of color in an election than anyone in 2018 did. Not by race, but by raw number."

Stacey Abrams would be honored to be Biden's running mate

Former Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacy Abrams said Thursday that she would be “honored” to be former Vice President Joe Biden’s running mate.

Abrams has previously refused to show interest in the vice presidential position but expressed interest directly for what is believed to be the first time on the political podcast, “Pod Save America.”

“I would be honored to be on the campaign trail as a running mate,” she said. “But that is a process that you can’t campaign for, and I’m not campaigning for. I’m just being straight-forward.”

“But no matter what, my intention is to ensure that Joseph Biden becomes the next president of the United States,” she continued.
